Abandoned Inn Magic Crystal
Version: 2.0
Author: Professor Ceranis Aesira

In the Abandoned Inn, there is a magical workshop. It is in the attic, south of the stairs and through the mirror. In this workshop, there is a clear blue crystal in a dented brass setting. This crystal is unlike any other, for it can determine the magical properties of an item, much like a bard or Elemental Detection (405) can. By holding the item in ones left hand and nothing in the right and touching the crystal, a display will be set off depending on the attributes of the item. The crystal indicates different things about different items. I have here tables of what the crystal’s displays mean and what they indicate about a specific object.

Special Thanks to Lord Marc, Lord Tenser, Lord Tabmow, Lady Thym, Lord Standex, Lady Bysshe, Lady Wysteria and everyone else who tested their items against the crystal for my research. Thanks also to Lady Tedra and Lord Eellos for donating their services and time towards my research.

If there are any questions you have or inconsistencies you find, e-mail me at Ceranis@aol.com.
-Thank you, and I hope this is helpful.
